Organics Recycling Locations
serving Stockton, Tracy, Lodi, Manteca, Ripon, Lathrop, Escalon and San Joaquin County

How do I recycle or properly dispose of...

Organic materials are any substances derived from living or once living organisms.  For our purposes we are referring to substances ranging from soil to tree trimmings and landscape waste.  There are many facilities in San Joaquin County that recycle these materials, but most (if not all) will not take this material free of charge.  Below is a list of local vendors who will take certain organic materials and recycle them for a fee.

Below is a list of local recyclers for the San Joaquin County area.  This list is provided for informational purposes only.  We suggest that you call the location for more information and details prior to delivering materials.
